About the Author

Jackie Sheeler is a lifelong New Yorker and a lifelong juggler: poet, performance artist, songwriter, wordrocker, publisher, blogger, producer and webmaster. Earthquake Came to Harlem is Jackie's fourth book. Her first full-length collection, The Memory Factory, won the Magellan Prize and was published by Buttonwood Press in 2002. In addition to The New York Quarterly, her work has been widely anthologized and has appeared in Painted Bride Quarterly, Phoebe, Slant, and many other journals. Jackie has taught workshops at The Writer's Voice as well as at drug rehabs and prisons. She founded the poetz.com website in 1999 which, in addition to being one of the first online literary zines, remains THE poetry event hub for NYC. 1999 also marked the beginning of her weekly reading series, The Pony, which has featured many poets of national reputation and continues to this day. Jackie has no MFA nor any desire to obtain one; she's done fine with her GED so far and feels no need for an educational upgrade.

By Michael J. Fiorito on October 31, 2010
Format: Paperback
This is a terrific collection.

The poems are just as strong on the page as when I've heard Jackie read them at venues around NYC - honest and full of heart.

Jackie's writing is powerful and tender, demonstrating that epic triumphs can be had even in hardscrabble situations.

Format: Paperback
To read Jackie Sheeler's "earthquake came to harlem" is to experience that unexpected jolt, your mental ground shift, and the place from which you viewed the world irrevocably altered. It is what poetry is supposed to do; it is what Emily Dickinson meant when she wrote it is to "feel physically as if the top of my my head were taken off."

Format: Paperback
Sheeler's most recent will shake you up and maybe stop your heart. This collection is naked and close to the bone; the poetry expresses emotions ranging from love and terror, to yearning and emptiness. No holds are barred in these contemporary, cutting-edge pages. Couldn't put it down.
